The NHS Oncology Conference 2022 London

The NHS Oncology Conference provides a high-value and peers focused platform for NHS Oncology and Cancer specialists to share practical insights and best practices from across the UK. Our physical events offer a unique opportunity to meet with key sector stakeholders in an informal and relaxed atmosphere, this provides an ideal chance to discuss strategic change and learn from some of the most well-respected public sector professionals in the country, all while soaking up the lovely atmosphere our venues and audience provide.

The Covid pandemic caused a sharp increase in waiting times and backlogs in a healthcare system that was already operating extremely close to its maximum capacity. By September 2021, it’s estimated there were 5.83 million patients on the waiting list for elective care, 1.95 million of those patients had been waiting for more than 18 weeks, including 301,000 waiting for more than a year.

To try and reduce further crisis NHS England set up a national Cancer Recovery Taskforce, headed up by Professor Peter Johnson, National Clinical Director for Cancer, and includes representatives from cancer charities, royal colleges, national teams and the NHS Cancer Programme’s Patient and Public Voices (PPV) Forum

The task force’s focus is the recovery of cancer services and it reports to the National Cancer Board which oversees the delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan ambitions for cancer – to diagnose 75% of cancers at stage 1 or 2, and for 55,000 more people to survive for five years or more by 2028.

The task force’s roles are to:

  • Review progress against the aims of the recovery plan monthly, reporting to the

National Cancer Board.

  • Identify any requirements for the successful recovery of cancer services that are

the responsibility of stakeholders outside the NHS Cancer Programme (eg public

awareness, cancer screening, infection control measures)

  • Understand and represent the needs of patients and their families, and NHS staff,

and engage with the wider cancer community on the national delivery of the

the recovery plan and its progress.

  • Share practical suggestions about what the wider cancer community can do to

support recovery.

Our upcoming conference aims to provide delegates with clear direction on the national strategy, which has been set in motion to help reduce the pressure on NHS Oncology services, and how it plans to support the people working in our NHS – the GPs, nurses, oncologists, radiographers and radiologists to name but a few – who will deliver these improvements at a local level.

Join us at The NHS Oncology Conference 2022 as we explore these new areas of best practice, network with peers and share insights across a short but high-value conference.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!


In view of the recent NHS Oncology Conference organised by CONVENZIS which was sponsored by Pascoe Healthcare Ltd, CONVENZIS exhibited professionalism through credible organisation, invitation of delegates/respectable Speakers and general conduct of the entire conference. This has also shown that CONVENZIS is a great partner in business which is fundamental to ROI of partnering Companies even in the wake of the pandemic.

Pascoe Healthcare

“We’ve worked with the Convenzis team for several years and their events are a regular occurrence for us. Not only is the content always extremely topical, but the speakers are always excellent and the support from the team ahead of and during the events is exceptional. The team are incredibly receptive to feedback and always goes above and beyond – a real pleasure to work with!”


“It has been a pleasure to work with Matt and Dan for the past few events. Everything has always run smoothly and we’ve always managed to gather a large number of interested parties due to the events they have hosted.

They are also very helpful and timely in their responses, which has made working with them very easy “
